HOUSTON -- After last night's loss to the Houston Rockets, the only thing the Washington Bullets could be thankful for is that their four-game road trip finally is over.It started last Thursday with an impressive overtime win over the Dallas Mavericks, but the Bullets lost their third straight last night to the defending champion Rockets, 93-85, at the Summit.Forward Otis Thorpe scored 27 points and Hakeem Olajuwon added 19 to lead the Rockets. Chris Webber's 22 points, and Gheorghe Muresan's presence on defense were the only bright spots for the Bullets.
